Poughkeepsie, NY – This Saturday, February 18th 2016, over 300 golfers will putt their way through cookie crumb sand pits, winding turns, tunnels, and other obstacles during the 20th Annual Tony Cappillino Memorial Golf Tournament.
Hosted by in the Poughkeepsie River District Business Association and Dutchess Beer Distributors, this winter’s mini golf tournament raises money for local families throughout the Hudson Valley.
Starting at 11:00 am, players walk or ride to each participating establishment in the Poughkeepsie River District area for nine holes of mini golf. Businesses this year include Amici's, Caffe Aurora, The Derby, Mahoney's, Milanese, Noah’s Ark, The Italian Center and the Shamrock Club.
The Tony Cappillino Memorial Golf Tournament began in 1997 as a tribute to Tony Cappillino, the former owner and operator of Dutchess Beer Distributors. Many of the restaurant owners in the Poughkeepsie River District personally knew and worked with Mr. Cappillino, and decided to honor his memory with an event that would benefit the community.
This Tournament has raised money for area families who are in need of financial assistance because they have a family member with a life-threatening or debilitating medical condition. The money that is raised by the Tournament from hole sponsors, player’s fees, and raffles, goes directly to the area‘s person and his/her family. Since 1998, over $200,000 has begin given away to area families.
